Imagine a world where cities and communities become classrooms, where all students unleash their innate potential, and schools drive racial equity and justice.

FOCUS

We’re transforming education through experiential learning.

Embarc creates experiential schools by aligning the entire school community around the goal of implementing meaningful experiences, building relationships, and integrating social-emotional learning. We help schools become places where young people are truly seen and believed in, where relationships between adults, students, and peers are strong. In Embarc schools, young people have real-world learning experiences in and beyond their communities so they can build the skills and agency to be successful in college, careers, and life.

PROGRAM

Embarc changes how teachers teach, students learn, and schools become communities.

In partnership with schools, we transform the way students and teachers connect to their communities through hands-on education experiences, building relationships, and social-emotional learning. Our model integrates curriculum, playbooks, coaching, data, and educators’ professional development to enable teacher and student success.

“There is nothing like Embarc in the educational landscape. They are truly an interruptive and disruptive force in the best of ways.”

Timothy Knowles

President, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

RESULTS

Embarc students and educators thrive throughout high school and beyond.

Students that participate in Embarc have higher graduation rates and post-secondary enrollment rates than their Chicago Public Schools peers. And equally importantly, through Embarc’s model, adult mindsets, teachers’ skills, and school climate and culture all dramatically improve.
